Hotels are not housing. Shelters are not housing. I don't care how many fancy phrases policy makers want to come up with. A real housing policy is providing a permanent home to everyone. We have the resources. Instead, we invest in strict *detention centers* for the unhoused.

A real Housing First policy is not allowing the violence of capitalism decide who gets a roof over their head and who doesn't.

@LorenzoWard7DC We spend more money being cruel than we do helping people effectively.

@LorenzoWard7DC We did the rough math. It would take less than 1% of the annual household income of D.C.'s above median income earners to house everyone on the street in apartment like conditions. This isn't even a solution. It just goes to show how doable a solution would be.

@4Unhoused @LorenzoWard7DC That sounds like hard math. It would cost roughly six BILLION to house everyone who is reportedly experiencing homeless. Let's say there are some transitorily unhoused who are unreported, and lets double the number to 1.2m homeless. It would cost then 12 billion to house everyone
